look at how they operate in the differences between countries. i found out one big railroad. my guys are the same guys in mexico and canada, and the united states, capital from the same place. the technology from all the rest comes from the same place. the roads were operated. so at that point, as is usual in my book, i realized i did not know what i was talking about in the book became very different from the one i set out to write as all talk about later, it was david. i started out thinking that these are going to be powerful efficient corporations with a berth in the churn in the north american west to don't really expect to see it. i did find some in the north american west which is not what i expected to sign. my maternity has as much to do with failure as success. >> one way to read your book, at least in my view is you connect to kind of running argument with the great austrian born longtime harvard economist, joseph schell later, who is most well-known for the phrase created distraction in the history of capitalism and modern economy is all about creative disruption. and as
